This week we had the pleasure of meeting with a group of interesting investors who wanted our opinion of their new proposed project. Believe it or not, these investors want to build an indoor ski slope in Las Vegas, similar to the one in Dubai Emirates Mall. So, this week we ask would you have any interest in using an indoor snow ski slope in Las Vegas. This would be a year round indoor amusement attraction. What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

Just for the record. . . . (The Dubai indoor ski slope was built in December 2005 and is the worlds third largest indoor ski slope measuring 400 meters and using 6000 tons of snow.)

This may not be a joke and the more I think about it the idea of indoor skiing sounds cool.  I think I would like it.  Ike Randall  NY

Sounds interesting, I would at least visit it once to see it.   Gloria C. 

 I wouldn't use it, with a knee replacement, but I'm sure it would be a moneymaker.  Debbie Beigh  Zionsville, IN

As a regular LV visitor either for Convention or pleasure, we do visits the snowy Mt Charleston every time we hit town. In UK , MIddle East and other resorts, Indoor Ski Slope is great to limber up before hitting the real slopes. LV will find it an all year hit.  Dick Scally  Reading England, UK

 If I want a ski vacation, I go to a ski resort if I want a sun vacation I go to a beach resort when I want a gambling vacation, I go to Vegas. Seems also a bit of nose thumbing considering the severe water shortage. Theres a lot of waste as it is but to see that much snow puts it right in a residents face.  shelley   Lakeland, FL

I would not want to see it nor would I use it. It would be a waste of space.  Sharon  Chicago, IL

I would not have any interest in going to an indoor ski slope in Las Vegas. I think a Six Flags or some other type of amusement park would be a better idea as familes are a big drawing card it seems these day visiting Las Vegas and it would also create jobs and activities for those who live in Vegas.  Pamela Lomack Ingersoll, Ontario Canada

I believe that one more new and exciting idea to make Las Vegas a unique city to visit can be nothing but good. Sounds like great fun, especially when it's 110 degrees outside. I am all for it. Good luck!  Lynn Isaacs  Las Vegas, NV

 In a time when the West has often asked those of us in Michigan to divert our water from the Great Lakes to fill the reservoirs of Nevada and other states it seems wasteful and irresponsible to put a ski slope in Vegas. Vegas has Mt. Charleston right there. I love Vegas but it's not for skiing.  Cindy Ballard  Battle Creek, MI

simple and to the point. tell these fools, i have a bridge i want to sell. this is the dumbest thing i've heard yet about what idea someone came up with for vegas.they would be better off packageing what there smokeing and selling it.  Ralph  Hamden CT

It might make a go of it if it was part of one of the existing large strip resorts. As a stand-alone they will be kissing their money goodbye. Maybe they could work out something with Circus-Circus and connect with the Adventuredome. Or maybe tie in with Mandalaybay's pool area.  Bill Sheneman   Red Hill, PA

hey guys and gals this is for vegas where anything goes and the more over the top the better. if the mandalay bay can have an all ice bar why not a ski slope in vegas. how cool for you to say you did that in vegas in july. why not,,if you build it...people will come and have fun in the snow.  theresa holden  zion il

 no las vegas don"t need a ski slope' they can't get any money to finish the Echelon. so were is the money going to come from. O let the new president give you money.  gary smith   south bend, in

Not a good idea. There are real ski slopes only hours from the strip. This doesn't fit the entertainment scheme of Las Vegas. Jim Bishop  Clarkston, MI

 I think that an indoor ski slope in LV would be a great idea, an added attraction that would give family members or children that do not endulge in gambling.  Sandra Lee  San Francisco, CA

No, an indoor ski slope sounds like something best suited for an athlete in training. For novice skiers - they may just appreciate the actual outdoors. To be actaully on a real ski slope is part of the beauty of the experience.  Larry Strehl  Tampa, FL
